We keep getting a page that says "Item does not have metadata." when we try to upload files.

bleah, you 'bricked' your own item just now.
fixed via restore.

try the "revert all files..." button on the /edit.php
page next time this happens -- looks to me like the initial "edit setup"
broke or the page didn't load properly so the item dir got trashed.

you'll need to make the intended changes over again now...

Sorry. Someone broke it again. What steps can be taken to prevent it from happening? I'm not sure what's gone wrong. For now I'll be uploading files for the person who has had the problem until we know the cause.

This page as gives the error now too:

if you/they have problems, hit the button on the edit page

[Cancel all Changes, Delete Uploaded Files, and Revert Item]

and that will reset the editing version of the item to the live version.
guessing you/they are interrupting the setup or something...

-t
PS: if you dont see the gray/undeletable _meta.xml and _files.xml files, at *least*, you know the edit version got botched, so Revert!

I'm afraid that won't work as we cannot access the editing page. We are taken to version of edit.php that has nothing other than the text "Item does not have metadata." And the problem only begins after finishing a set of uploads.
